Today is June 11, 2011. On June 11, 2010, I arrived in Shanghai. I’ve been here an entire year – woot! In celebration I stayed at home and did absolutely nothing … kind of like my usual Saturday. This past Monday was the Dragonboat Festival (which is why I didn’t have class) and for the holiday people eat zongzi. I still have a number of zongzi in my fridge and freezer, so I’m slowly working my way through them.
They’re basically these things made of sticky rice, with pork inside, and wrapped in a leaf. My mother used to make them, but she hasn’t for a long time because it’s such a hassle if you’re not making a lot. The below picture is of a zongzi that my aunt had made. Yummy.
